Part three of a three part series focused on the topic of "A Sustainable Built Environment". This new webinar series continues our cross-disciplinary, knowledge sharing, expert led webinars designed to provide good practice case studies and insight into key topics from a range of sectors - providing different perspectives, but all with the goal of protecting and enhancing our environment. 

The series titled A Sustainable Built Environment is the fourth Webinars@SocEnv series, and the third to provide cross-sector insights on an topical umbrella webinar theme (Series one looked at Why and How to Become a CEnv / REnvTech). Each webinar speaker across all series are either registered as a Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) or Registered Environmental Technician (REnvTech). 

Part three will comprise of two Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) speakers - experts in their relevant fields and both working on the mega infrastructure project that is HS2. Each CEnv will provide a twenty minute insight into their sub-topic, followed by participating in a question and answer session with the audience to conclude. This is your chance to ask the expert - or indeed offer an alternative solution.

To find out more about the speakers and their talks, and/or to listen and participate for free on Thursday 12th March 2020 (12:00 - 13:00 BST), please keep reading.
